Dear Design Lovers,
After almost two years of covid and periodical lockdowns, the best producers worldwide had a lot of time to think about how we live in personal spaces as family, as professionals in need to have working stations at home, and as individuals who need to relax; therefore, look up-close and analyze the way we live our home spaces every day so they could provide with BEST SOLUTIONS FOR OUR NEEDS AND DESIRES.
At the biggest exhibition from the industry iSaloni, held in Milan every year, the last one has took place in June 2022, many producers presented A NEW LIFESTYLE, reorganizing spaces and presenting innovative products, concentrating on ergonomic shapes, uplifting comfortability, and investing in high-quality raw materials.
December has arrived and we’re ready for festivities! Every year during this period, we gather with our family members to decorate the house with beautiful decorations and a marvelous Christmas tree!
According to the Chinese calendar, the year 2023 will be governed by the Water Rabbit. Therefore, I thought it will be most appropriate to use decorations of the water element, especially in accents on the blue color, from the lightest grey to the deepest black, including all the shades of blue and greens.

One of my favorite chandeliers from the Holland design company MOOOI is the model Heracleum III, part of the Moooi Lighting Collection. It was designed by Bertjan Pot in 2010, an airy LED lamp inspired by the flowering plant of the same name. The white leaves grow from one branch, creating a blossom of branches, making it look naturally. The structure is powered by Electrosandwich, a coating of conductive layers on the branches, creating a clean silhouette.
Edra is an Italian company of Tuscan origins, born in 1987. The nickname has ancient origins and it is quite suggestive. To fully understand the concept that stands behind, we must go back in history and enter the stately home of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Inside those villas, there was a special room called “esedra”, filled with comfortable sittings, a special space dedicated to welcoming guests and having long conversations. By taking the name “Edra”, the Italian company associates its mission with offering the best sittings ever, uniting technology with comfort, and creating elegant and timeless products we can enjoy every day.
Like many success stories we’ve heard before, FLEXFORM started as a family business in the sixties, in the Brianza manufacturing district, in the Northern part of Italy.
This region has a rich history of being a concentration of great artisan manufacturers of padded furniture since the early 1900s. Moreover, being very close to Milano city, it had access to the best creatives from the industry, collaborating with many architects, designers, and artists, and being able to create industrial designs using innovative materials way ahead of the rest of the world.
It all started in 1959 when the Galimberti brothers opened an artisan workshop, called “Flexform di Galimberti”, which specialized in the production of upholstered sofas and armchairs. In the following years, their furniture pieces were present inside the most prestigious villas and historical palaces from Milano to Lake Como, becoming a well‐known name in the industry.
Schiapparelli was born in a family of aristocrats of Italian origins, descendants of the Medici family. At a certain point, she transferred to New York, and then to Paris, where she encountered Paul Poiret, whose garments inspired her to become a designer. She began as a freelancer designing sports garments. Her first international recognition arrived when designing a knit pullover with a white trompe-l’oel bow motif, being featured in American Vogue.
The leather dress is offering a pinch of strong appeal and sexuality!
A dress made of natural leather (or eco-leather) is a special garment. It is a fashion statement, giving the woman a secure and powerful look, demonstrating strength and a certain status, and looking confident and sexy.
